Great Western Malting Visit

Rob Liedl, head maltster at Great Western Malting Co., was kind enough to host a tour yesterday of their malting facility in Vancouver, WA.

Great Western provides much of the organic base malt that constitutes up to 80% of our year-round and seasonal beers. We also had the privilege of tasting their first batch of organic wheat!

On a side note: Anyone interested in "old school" malting techniques should visit this web site.
